5.145. liberation-fonts

Updated liberation-fonts packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The liberation-fonts packages provide fonts intended to replace the three most commonly used fonts on Microsoft systems: Times New Roman, Arial, and Courier New.

Bug Fix

Previously, the "fonts.dir" file provided with the liberation-fonts packages was empty. As a consequence, legacy applications were not able to make use of liberation-fonts even when the package was installed. This was because the "mkfontscale" command was run after the "mkfontdir" command. The order of running the commands has been changed and legacy applications can use liberation-fonts as expected.
All users of liberation-fonts are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
